hope springs eternal

how about expanding the options for flying into the UK to give CO/UA a run for their money.

My top 3 would be -

1. ORD-EDI
2. ORD-GLA
3. ORD-LGW

Anything to avoid Heathslow!

great news - hopefully it wont have the same fate as the proposed NCL-JFK route a couple of year ago.
